Leviton launches “next generation” EV charging pedestals
By Renée Francoeur
June 8, 2015 – Leviton says the “next generation of electric vehicle charging station pedestals for workplace environments” have arrived. The new system integrates Leviton’s Evr-Green 32-amp charging station with a pedestal system, equipped to provide single or dual electric vehicle mounting options to allow users to charge two vehicles per pedestal.
“We’ve learned that consumers desire a workplace electric vehicle charging system that delivers on the principles of safety, convenience, cost-effectiveness and reliability,” said Manoj Karwa, senior director of EVSE Programs for Leviton’s Commercial and Industrial Business Unit. “At Leviton, we see more and more companies showing environmental leadership and installing electric vehicle infrastructure. Our goal is to safely offer a system that can deliver more than 15kW of power with a starting price under $1300 (US) to meet this growing trend.”
Leviton’s electric vehicle charging station pedestals are suited for a variety of applications, including auto dealerships, car rental agencies, city and township municipalities, healthcare facilities, educational institutions and any commercial or multi-dwelling unit (MDU) setting.
